If we managed to clone neanderthals and effectively resurrect their species, do you think they would deserve rights? Would/should they be allowed to integrate with modern humans? Could you ever consider a neanderthal your equal?
All modern humans are descended from African Homo Sapiens, while Homo Neanderthalis evolved independently in Eurasia. Under the One Drop Principle, Neanderthals were the only real white people in existence.
Considering that we barely know anything about them and how they could possible integrate in modern society, that's unanswerable. All we know is that we had sex and children with them and some of their genes persist in us.
actually *were. a resurrected species would be entirely contingent on humanity and owe us everything so far as their existence is concerned.
they'd have the rights as to what they are: playthings, much like the uncontacted tribes of South America who literally live out the stone age equivalent of shyamalans "village" all for the fact that their survival is contingent on our active avoidance of contacting them.
>>603624 A lot of that is really arguable. Whether the Neanderthals had or could have reached "behavioral modernity" is unanswerable imo.
And of course a lot of that is also really subjective. The pygmies also do everything you mentioned and they are clearly Homo sapiens but they still can barely operate in modern society. Most of us would argue we still would/should give them full rights due to our contemporary, western attitudes but the contemporary Bantu probably wouldn't agree as much.
>>603566 Even if they weren't as smart as humans, they should still get full and equal rights. Mentally disabled people are still protected under the law, and as a thinking, reasoning being, so should an neanderthal.

All we know is that we had sex and children with them and some of their genes persist in us. Depends. If they can learn language and ask for rights then they should be given them. If they can't they can live in Siberia or somewhere and hunt mammoth clones to entertain Ice age safari tourists.
